Comments on the course

Attendance is mandatory if you have no background in Java. The assignments and labs start very easy if you have already taken C at uvic, or another coding class, but they get significantly harder at the end. The midterms / all tests are very theory based as well as coding, so make sure you not only understand how to code but how the theory of tracing and linked lists ect. all works. Anthony is a very fair prof who does a very good job of explaining all the concepts, he usually replies pretty fast to any questions you might have also. I would recommend stopping buy his early office hours as It seemed he tended to remember people very easily who put themselves in close contact with him.

Advice

Overall the class is not awful, but make sure you really keep up after first midterm when it really starts to pick up

Comments on the course

Mostly theory and very little programming. The first part of the course is discrete math and basically just an extension of MATH 122, while the middle is mostly a repeat of CSC 115 with the data structures. It definitely increases in difficulty at the end.
